Just a little Pet Peeve I guess ... but my name is LoriAnn (not Lori)... I will answer to Lori, but I much prefer my real name:>
I am a 43 year old, SAHM, to Hannah Michelle (age 4). I have basically been a "Hoosier" all my life ... born and raised. I call Indianapolis home, but I am a "wanna be beach girl". DREAM BIG ... right?!
Wanna know more??? I love Pen Pals (hint ... hint)!
My daughter, Hannah, is a big part of my life. She will be five this August. She loves to get surprises in Mommy's packages too. She is your typical little girl ... loves pink, purple, and green (her room is purple and green). She loves Barbies, her American Doll, Dress-Up and all things Princess. She also loves Match Box Cars and anything trains. She is following on my foot steps and loves anything that has to do with art!!!
I do not mind at all on TAGS, WISH LIST'S, etc if you send her something instead of me or split goodies between us!!! You are sure to get a HEART for giving something to the person that has my heart!
I LOVE to do JUNK MAIL type things ... not send me your junk ... repurpose and recycle things! I frequently ok more then frequently recycle envelopes I get from others (not my mail art ones) ... feel free to do the same!
I love to craft! I am not a artist, but when I do something I put my all into it.
I have always enjoyed Scrap Booking and Card Making. I absolutely love to make Envelopes!!! I also like enjoy doing any type of Altered Art, Journals (all types including Circle and Junk). Since joining SB I have gotten into ROLOS and ATC's!!! I love to experiment and learn new crafts. Mixed Media Art is what I am dabbling in currently.
I want to learn to sew and knit by the end of the year! I would like to learn more about Dotee Dolls if anyone is interested in trading for one of my crafts.
In addition to crafting I love to write letter and have Pen Pals from all over.
I also enjoy cooking and baking … I have won several RECIPE CONTESTS!!! In the Spring and Summer I love to work in my backyard.
I LOVE to read. I will read anything that looks or sounds interesting!
I don't really limit myself to one genre. I like to read Modern Romance, Chick-Lit, Paranormal Romance, Suspense, and Mystery. I will read some Sci-Fi and Horror as long as it is not pure "slasher" type. I am not a big fan of Historical Romance, but if you find one that is a "must" read, I will give it a try. I would like to read more of the Classics this year, that I have not read. Got a good one that you love ... suggest it please!
I can't say I have a "favorite author". I like James Patterson, Ted Dekker, Harlan Coban, Elin Hilderbrand, Lynsay Sands and so many others!
If you are a reader, I would love to hear what you like to read and some of your favorite authors. I love suggestions.
For 2012, I have challenged myself on GOOD READS and challenged myself to read through the alphabet (reading a different author for ever letter of the alphabet.) I have started a READING JOURNAL. If you are interested in a Private Swap and doing a Reading Journal together ... please message me.
"I have a love/hate relationship with e-readers. I love them because I can carry them with me. I hate them because I miss the smell and feel of a book in my hands."
I am a child of music ... my parents loved music and I have fond memories of dancing around the house with them and being exposed to music early on. I use to think my Dad was Bowzer (Sha Na Na) because of a picture of him in his younger days in a white dinner jacket and greased back hair.
I love music from the 70's up till now! I like a lot of the older one hit wonders. Think oldies ... Afternoon Delight, Pina Coloda, I'd really Love To See You Tonight. 80's and current one hit wonders are good too. I listen to almost anything, but Rap and Gospel (there's nothing wrong with it ... just not me).
If I had to pick one genre ... I guess it would be country. Old and new.
I am a big fan of Rod Stewart's Song Book make overs! Can you sexy?! Phil Collin's make overs of old songs are great too as well as his music ... the man is awesome!
The Phantom of the Opera is a really big mood music and full of memories for me.
Hawaii artists that redo American songs are GREAT! Try listening to Kolea who sings "Everything That Glitters Is Not Gold" (originally y by Dan Seals. Listen to the words and how he sings them. Try Ka'au Crater Boys and Ten Feet Under (especially Islands In the Stream).
If anyone wants to burn me cd's ... as a trade, RAOK, etc. let me know!!! I will be happy to do the same for you!
*I have LOTS of music for toddlers/ kids!!!!
Leverage, The Good Wife, The Closer, NCIS, Criminal Minds, The Finders, Blue Bloods, Person of Interest, Storage Wars, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Broke Girls, The Gifted Man, Parenthood and The Mentalist.
I am sure I am forgetting some too! I use to like Reality Shows, but I think they have "jumped the shark"!
We really don't watch movies (let alone go to them). That is not to say I don't like them ... it just seems we don't get around to seeing them. I do love the TWILIGHT MOVIES and can't wait for the HUNGER GAMES to come out!!!
Colors: I'm not a color snob … I like all colors. I am not a big pink person, but I don't dislike it.
I love BLK/WHITE combo, PURPLE/BLK combo and TIFFANY BLUE/BROWN combo. FOOD and BEVERAGE:
The only known allergy I have is PICKLES and TUNA ... don't see that being sent (I hope). I don't like CHERRIES, but if something cherry is sent I have two in the house that will eat.
I LOVE coffee!!! I don't care for instant or the tea bags of coffee. I really really like flavored coffee (all kinds). I love tea too. All flavors except ... black and green (medication does not allow this). I devour the little single packets of flavoring that you add to water (Crystal Light, Hawaiian Punch, etc.).
I would really like to try some chocolates and various candies from other countries!!! YUMMY!!! I love all types of chocolate ... white, regular, dark. Some of my favorites are KIT KATS and REESE'S ... I hear our International buddies have some really different flavors!
I also like GUM and SUCKERS!!! And Hannah will "fight me for suckers so if you find something unique for her, your sure to get a HEART!
A DOTTE DOLL … I have never seen one and really want to see what they are. Please oh please!
MIXED CD'S … made by you. See my MUSIC FAVORITES. It is ok to add some of your favorites in too as long as it is not RAP or GOSPEL. Nothing against either … I just don't listen to either.
GAME PIECES: SCRABBLE TILES, DOMINOES (any size), GAME BOARDS (can be cut down … I use them for misc crafts)
AIR MAIL ENVELOPES … TAPE, ETC.
DECO TAPE … any kind … left overs welcomed!!!

*Marbles ... not the solid colored ones.
*Buttons ... all types ... all sorts... decorative or plain!
*Antique Kitchen Items ... this one is a little different. I love old time kitchen gadgets.

*Used Stamps ... I love having a collection of USED postage stamps!
